"A seaside village with great community spirit. Boat ramp, Sports club, Great eating facilities, all walking distance. Tooradin is only 11 kilometres from Cranbourne and 40 minutes drive to Chadstone Shopping Centre."

Tooradin has a "VLine" public bus service passing through regularly, every day. The boat ramp and foreshore facilities are extremely popular. A very modern "seaside" themed playground is a huge drawcard to families for togethers, including free BBQs and disable friendly toilet facilities.

"peace and quiet"

Nobody even knows if I'm home or not. Have been to hospital 3 times (long stays) in 2 years and the neighbours didn't even miss me. Love the total isolation

Kelley Moldovan
Kelley Moldovan Tooradin is a very community minded place to live. I also had an operation last year and my neighbour noticed my car home all day for a couple of weeks and checked with my husband if everything was ok. She then let him know if we needed anything she was happy to lend a hand and sent her best wishes for my recovery.
